Penn State AD Sandy Barbour reiterated her support for HC James Franklin.
If nothing else, Barbour has been consistent. In late September, she insisted that Franklin was "not on the hot seat and he's not going to be on the hot seat in December." This week, more of the same. Said the athletic director, "I want Penn State football to stand for excellence. Always has and always will. To some degree, I want our fans to be impatient, but I also want them to understand factual challenges." Those "factual challenges" she is referring to are the NCAA sanctions imposed after the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke several years back. Franklin and the Nittany Lions are off to a 3-2 start to the season, having alternated wins and losses through the first five games of the 2016 campaign. A surprise 4-0 Maryland team will travel to Happy Valley for a date with the Nittany Lions on Saturday. Oct 6 - 2:25 PM
